Why is it so hard to write things that mean something? I always struggle with this. I think that we all are trying to find something that makes our lives meaningful. I always wanted to be an artist of some sort. You know, someone who has a creative mind. A songwriter. A photographer. A painter. I’m not saying that I am not any of those, it’s just that I’ve never thought my abilities in those areas were good enough to share with the world. So then I ask, is it important that I share those with the world? Is sharing your work what gives meaning? And I think the answer to that is no. I can do those things for myself, but there is something to be said to be someone who creates things that mean something to other people. When I look at my life, the thing that I think that I have the best shot at when it comes to making something that I truly want to share with the world is writing. I am in awe of the written language everyday and I want to contribute to that. I guess what I’m saying is that all I want is to create truly meaningful things. I think we all should.

I want to do so much and be so much. There’s just so much in life I wish I could do. I wish I could paint, or sing, or draw, or decently play an instrument. I want to do these things to inspire myself or in hopes to inspire someone else, so it’s kind of disheartening when I realize I’m not great at any of these things. I am aware you don’t have to be great to do something as long as it makes you happy that’s all you need, but there’s something inside me that keeps whispering ‘you’re meant to do something great’ then I think of the one thing that I may actually have the potential to be be great at: writing. Not the kind of writing that has a rubric and a rigid structure to follow, not the kind of writing for grading, but the written work of pure imagination. Words that can take you away to a different world where anything is possible. Words that create a new reality. Words are what inspire me. They can be sung in lyrics, spoken by mouths or written on a page it doesn’t matter words are what inspire me and I’m going to do whatever it takes to write the words that are inside my head. It doesn’t matter if I’m the only person who will ever read them, they will be given life on a page. That’s all that matters, giving life to the words inside your head.
